Viewing Rates

I was wondering if I click to watch a show, which is on live TV, and it asks if you want to watch live or on demand, if I click on demand, will this still count as a viewing in the viewing rates, or is it just if you watch it live (with ads). Also will watching a show on demand be a view, even if the show has not aired on live TV.

If I’m not mistaken I believe that DVR and on demand content counts towards the “weekly” ratings for content.

 

This link will give you an indication of how the ratings get added up in the UK. 
Suggests that Live, SVOD and time delay (recording?) are factors.

Re: Viewing Rates

Hi @Sk8erboi 

 

Not sure what you mean by Viewing Rates (unless you mean counts has one of your simultaneous streams on your NowTV account and if so it doesn't matter if you watch live or on demand has they both count has one stream against your account).

 

If you mean something else, please post back with some more information.

Do you mean counting to the number of viewers that have watched the show?

Re: Viewing Rates

Yes, the views a show recieves (indicating popularity and renewals for more seasons).

Re: Viewing Rates

Hi @Sk8erboi 

 

To be honest i have never known this question to be asked before (might be wrong) and i have been a regular on the Community Forum for about 6 years.

 

I don't even know if NowTV physically counts the number of streams it gets on a particular TV Show or Movie with regards to viewing numbers (unless there is some software algorithm working behind the scenes which i wasn't aware of).

 

Unless other forum members know the answer to your question, then maybe ask NowTV directly by using the email address indicated on the screen shot below.

Hey Guys

 

Asking about viewing rates/figures is something Now TV may consider to be commercial-in-confidence data, only to be shared between board members and potential buyers.

 

Personally, I expect Now TV to be silent on this particular topic.

Re: Viewing Rates

See 

http://www.artesea.co.uk/nowtv/movies.php

and sort by popularity

 

it doesn’t have numbers, but shows how popular movies are, so now tv are recording and publishing it. However life is too short for me to figure it out.

Yeah

 

Popularity  and viewing figures are two different things, and only one of those can be commercial-in-confidence.
